Then you responded by saying "You're okay right now, and haven't done anything wrong, but we think you might do something wrong someday, so you're not allowed to buy any guns."
How was your response relevant? Moevillini was saying that if you ARE in fact ok at the time you are trying to buy the gun, then you would be able to.
The point is you can still get guns.... Thats the important thing right?
I thought you want to be able get guns..... well go get some. No one is stopping you.
What are you so afraid of salty? Its wierd how the people who seem to love guns are the one who are so afraid all the time. Coincedence? Or does owning guns automatically make you fearful?
Salty it seems like you and many other pro gun people are very scared/concerned/worried right now... why is that the case exactly? What are you worried is going to happen?
In addition to that, I want to be able to SELL my stuff used.
You're obviously not into this so you don't know, but it's not at all uncommon for someone to buy a gun, go shooting with it a few times, then realize they like some other gun better. Maybe it fits their hand better, or the right feels better, the sites are better, or they just shoot better with it. They then sell that gun used (and ksl is the place for that in Utah, gun shows are the place everywhere else) and then use the money to buy the one they want.
You're premise of "go buy them all brand new if you want them, then keep them for life" is nonsense.
it's a who do you trust question. the general public or government. I think there are good people both places. I also know that through history when a government gains enough power it is only a matter of time before absolute power corrupts absolutely. again this is a right that our founders saw imperative after spilling their blood for our freedom. gun crimes happened back then too. I'm old fashioned and I don't think the time for this right has passed. I haven't even fired my gun for years, but its a scary thought that someone would regulate it or heaven forbid take it or quit selling cartridges. that sounds like another country.
The NRA has completely bought the republican party and a good chunk of democratic party. This will blow over and whatever changes we imagine will come of this will be mostly if not completely undone within the next 8-12 years.
I've been reading into a few mass murders. In Canada, Marc LÚpine planned his rampage for months. In South Korea, Woo Bum-kon was an alcoholic police officer who took his weapons right out of the police armory. Poorer countries tend to use incendiaries. Oceania and Maritime Southeast Asia rampages have relied almost exclusively on melee weapons (13 events with 12 dead minimum).
Guns aren't the issue. Although I can see some new restrictions on AR-15's, it won't be a solution.
Build a man a fire; keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of this life.
Repeating the same actions and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.
Let's keep moving forward, rather than take a huge step backwards on the premise that we will eventually get back to where we are today.
